Before coming to Canada, I pursued my passion for architecture and spent a year studying it. The aspect that I loved the most was designing and creating models of buildings using various materials. However, after moving to Canada, I decided to pursue a different path and studied business at SFU to become an analyst. It wasn’t until my final year of school that I began questioning whether I wanted to spend my days staring at a computer screen in an office.
While watching cake shows on TV, I was fascinated by the incredible edible creations that the bakers made. So, when my cousin ordered a custom cake for her birthday from a local bakery, I was excited to try it. Although the cake looked beautiful, it was disappointingly sweet and dense, and many guests barely took a second bite. I sampled other cakes from different bakeries in town, but most were the same – visually appealing but overwhelmingly sugary.
I also became aware of how challenging it can be to order a beautiful and luxurious cake, with some cake shops requiring complicated ordering processes.
That’s when I realized my goal: to make cakes that not only look stunning but also taste light and fluffy with a minimal amount of sugar and aiming to simplify the process of ordering luxurious and delectable sweets as much as possible.
I experimented with various recipes and design techniques, transferring the creativity that I loved in architecture to cake-making. The first cake I made was a unicorn cake for a friend’s birthday, and I practiced for two weeks straight. The stress paid off, and the cake was a hit!
The compliments and encouragement I received from that event motivated me to continue practicing and perfecting my techniques with new recipes. After finishing school, I decided to pursue my passion for cake-making and founded Dory Cakes.
At Dory Cakes, we pride ourselves on filling a market gap for easily accessible and beautifully crafted cakes with a luxurious feel. We noticed that many cake shops either have a complex ordering process through phone or email, or if easily accessible at local markets, lack the upscale touch.
Our mission is to make the process of ordering luxury and delectable sweets as simple as possible. With just a few clicks, you can have a stunning and delicious cake delivered right to your doorstep. We believe that everyone deserves to indulge in a little bit of luxury, and our cakes are designed to provide just that.
